Grain On The Rocks hosts first socially distanced summer concert

Grid system keeps guests appropriately separated
July 24, 2020

Grain On The Rocks at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal held the first of four outdoor summer concerts July 23, with a performance by Cape Region legends The Funsters. 

The ferry terminal’s green space was divided into a grid. Each 12-by-12-foot block could welcome up to eight family members. 

The event kicked off Grain’s Rocking the Docks concert series at the ferry this summer.

Grain co-owner Lee Mikles said he worked with Delaware River and Bay Authority and the state to develop a safe plan for the shows. Face coverings are required when not within a family’s designated area. 

Rocking the Docks will continue Thursday, July 30, with the Brit Pack of New York; and Thursday, Aug. 6, with Pressing Strings of Annapolis, Md.; and conclude with Hot Dogs & Gin of Endicott, N.Y., Thursday, Aug. 20.
